Our pillars of approach

Transferable study credits
Students can get certain online study credits recognized when they transfer to a local university in Jordan thereby saving tuition fees.
Strong blended learning
Through a combination online and offline learning modes, students are organised in groups and offered access to study centres in Jordan.
Online learning advocacy
To ensure sustainable prospects for our students and beyond, Kiron also holds a policy advocacy agenda in Jordan working with multiple stakeholders to advance the culture and recognition of online learning on a macro-level in the country.
